for the interview. >> and another political big wig takes exception on a big question of where he plans to send his kids to school. >> first off, it is none of your business. >>> and we begin with the debt ceiling fight, and the republicans unable to agree to disagree, and here is the level of confusion coming from the gop on the ongoing debt debate. this morning the washington post set the stage for a potential breakthrough reporting on the editorial page right here that grover norquist, the anti-tax guru of the right said that allowing the bush era tax cuts to expire would not be a violation of the tax pledge that nearly every member of congress has resigned which is a significant concession. problem solved? not exactly. within hours norquist told my colleague chris jansing this right here on msnbc on jansing & company. >> i can be clear, americans for tax reform would oppose any effort to weaken, reduce or not continue the 2001-2003 bush tax cuts and any changes of the taxes should be kept separate from the budget deal. >> moments ago, the post released audio of norquist supporting their editori
the washington post, and one from what we played on msnbc earlier on jansing & company. >> well, it is a big deal as it was originally recordednd mr. hoyer in the whip meeting this morning mentioned it, so if mr. norquist was taking a position that is reasonable that expiring tax cuts under existing law were not tax increases that creates a lot of breathing room for us and head room. >> a lot. >> but my understanding is that he has gone back on that, and so revenues have to be part of it, and, you know, when i talk candidly to many of the republican colleagues, they understand that. and they are worried about the revenues and not getting the cuts, and there is anxiety on the net level of negotiation, but most folks understand that when we are spending 22% of the gdp and collecting revenues lower than the eisenhower era at 15%, that doesn't work. >> congressman, under the gun today? if not today, a deal by friday? what do you think? >> well, honestly, i don't know, but what i do know is that we have to have a deal and we cannot allow america to default. if you are eric cantor and want to have more

"hardball" starting right now. >>> so what's the deal? let's play some "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm in for chris matthews tonight. leading off, deal or no deal. all day long there's been word that a deal between president obama and speaker john bane zer boehner is in the works to save the u.s. from default. pub lkly both sides are denying it. it's clear adults on both sides are trying to avoid default. how do you get to an agreement when pea tae tea parters are saying no deal with tax increases and democrats are saying, no deal without them? we crunched numbers and default would seem to affect almost every american home. >>> also, does michele bachmann have mi have migraines? may be debilitated for days at time or something we would have never mentioned about a male candidate? >>> how did an anti-american terrorist become so trusted by u.s. officials in afghanistan he was allowed close eno
bachmann's job performance. >>> and rush limbaugh, hot air. hits a new high. his latest attack on big government is our con job of the day. >>> welcome to the show, i'm al sharpton. tonight's lead, are we closer to a deal or disaster? president obama and house speaker john boehner may be nearing a deal for a new grand bargain on debt limit. the president is meeting with democrats right now at the white house. presumably to talk about the deal. but any agreement would have to get past the tea party republicans in the house. and democrats say, they have a problem. >> the loudest shrillest voices from the republican party are not leaders but tea party extremists. >> they group of ideal ogs have grabbed the reigns and refuse to let go. it is the group who alone wants to drive the car off the cliff. >> but now, even boehner is saying republicans must compromise. >> i believe congress must act before august 2nd and i hope we are prepared to do that. at the end of the day, we have v a responsibility to act. >>> if the united states of america's debt rating gets downgraded, every interest rat
the possibility of doing something bigger. >> look, here's where things stand. there are three different big deals out there. number one is what the president and speaker boehner and eric cantor are negotiating, which is, yes, a big deal that is separate from anything the gang of six in the senate is working on. and then of course there's mcconnell-reid. one thing that's going on in the last 24 to 48 hours, is any deal that's mcconnell-reid that includes this idea of sort of the disapproval vote, giving the president more power to raise the debt ceiling, that thing has grown to the point of almost being toxic with some house republicans. in fact, they hate it so much, they may prefer to negotiate with the president directly. but for the white house, getting the 217 means making a deal acceptable to at least some of those houses with 87 new members. the man who's made himself their standard bearer, majority leader eric cantor put it this way. >> one-third of the republican conference and one-quarter of the entire house of representatives are freshmen, they're new. many of them have never served in
area alone. >> unauthorized immigrants are found throughout the state. they are not just the big areas that we expect to find them which is los angeles or san joaquin valley or agricultural areas. in the bay area, about 8% of the population is unauthorized and that's the same average in the state. >> reporter: researchers also confirm that illegal immigrants pay federal taxes taxes. the study relied on tax id numbers which many undocumented workers use to file tax returns since they don't have social security numbers. rural counties like monterey, san benito, napa and sonoma have some of the highest percentages of illegal immigrant residents. among bay area counties, santa clara and alameda had the highest percentages. >> i think the study has come out we haven't had like a real number. >> reporter: but the immigrant rights and education network in san jose thinks there are even more illegal immigrants because some are afraid to file tax returns. >> i think that might be a little bit more. i think that there's a lot of people that fear to a certain extent, you know, letting the govern
for millionaires and big corporations is what republicans have called for. they need to meet us somewhere. >> thank you, congressman steve israel. >> thank you. >>> joining me now, "washington post's" chris, author of "the fix". a managing editor also. let's visit this grover norquist issue. i think on tuesday in an interview with your "washington post" editorial board, grover norquist, the man famous for his anti-tax pledge, said that not renewing the bush tax cuts would not violate his pledge. listen to some of that audio released. >> not continuing a tax cut is not technically a tax increase. >> stow does not violate the pledge. >> we wouldn't hold it that way. it would be a very bad thing to do. it would raise taxes from where they are today. >> who don't follow the inside baseball the way you and i eat, drink and sleep it. what is the significance of grover norquist saying that? >> for people who don't know, grover norquist since 1985 has run a group called americans for tax reform pap d.c.-based group that does a lot of thing. basically, to holded line on no tax increases for republicans. eve
: this scandal may not seem like a big deal from afar but it's already left the prime minister scrambling, the head of scotland yard has resigned, and a skating parliamentary report accused rupert murdoch's company of deliberately trying to thwart a criminal investigation into the illegal activities of his newspaper here. >> isn't it time that we sent this non-tax paying murdoch back from whence he came? >> reporter: the prime minister didn't have to. murdoch boarded his private jet to fly home to the u.s. no doubt happy to leave london and all the turbulence behind. jeffrey cough rkofman, abc news loloon. >> certainly not over yet though as this continues to grow and we're investigating issues here. people, perhaps 9/11 victims, who might have had their cell phones hacked. >> it's scary. judging by the atmosphere there. and the number two, headlines in australia this morning, now that country may be stepping into the investigation to see if phone hacking occurred on their turf. so this thing's snowballing out of control. >> that's for sure. agreed. although you can hop in your private je
-old lynx who shuddered at the thought of diversity. >> we don't want it. just be a big muddle. we just want to preserve our race. >> reporter: the twins say they're quite liberal now, embracing medical marijuana after lynx was diagnosed with cancer freshman year and lamb sought relief from back pain and scoliosis. for lynx and lamb, grooming into white supremacy started at birth. they were nurtured on racist beliefs by their mother april, who is unapologetic about her parenting and her beliefs. >> we were christians, they would be singing christian rock songs. but we're not, we're white nationalists. so of course that's a part of our life and i'm -- i share that part of my life with my children. >> reporter: but today, april believes the girls are just falling into peer pressure. they're saying what everyone wants to hear so they won't be harassed anymore. let's face it, it's not popular to be a white separatist. and they want to be popular. the girls, however, say this is who they are. and that time, experience, and love has changed them for the better. lamb says, we just want to come from
augustway, there is big-time fighting going on in house. we have a fight between congressman west of florida and congresswoman debbie wasserman schultz. break down the fight and start off with what wasserman schultz said that angered west. take a listen. >> president obama vowed to veto this bill which ends the medicare guarantee and incredulously the gentleman from florida who represents thousands of medicare beneficiaries as do i is supportive the plan to increase cost for medicare beneficiaries. unbelievable from a member from south florida. >> andrea: okay, whether it's truthful or not, that was just policy. here is how west reacted in an e-mail to wasserman schultz. >> for her to follow me on the house floor after i have given a one-minute speech and i talked about facts and figures as far as the debt ceiling and her to make personal references to me after i had left i didn't appreciate that. she is not a victim. she has been attacking allen west for quite some time. i finally had to let her know enough is enough. >> eric: hold on. that was his explanation for this. right here that he s
committed to a big deficit reduction package because he was always going to include something that was impossible for house republicans? >> but that was -- this is where i bang head on table, right? because i am -- i'm basically a right wing person and if i can get a deal where you preserve the infrastructure of tax rates, you give up something on deductions, schedules, and credits, and you get a democratic president to say i'll go first on medicare, i'll squeeze the providers, or i will make some changes on social security, it won't work when george w. bush leads, but when a democrat leads, okay, but you have to agree in this 1 in 6, 1 in 7 thing that you don't like. i say let's explore. and the president on health care and now again on this debt ceiling, as you say, he may have been very insincere and counting on republican intransigence to save him from his words, but the words were said, the door was there. this could be the moment where republicans got a lot out of a president who asked only a little from them, overconfident they'd say know. we now see he's rightly confid

[ gnome ] it's go time. patti ann: minnesota's state government is back in business. democratic governor mark dayton signing a budget deal ending the neigh's longest state government shutdown in a decade. >> it destroyed minnesota's reservist standing for a state of responsible government and a balanced government and one that's not going to be hijacked by the tea party intransigence. patti ann: republicans have stood their ground on not raising taxes, but minnesota's budget deal relies on borrowing, so leaders on both sides of the isle concede -- aisle con
, actually, if they know there's a big deal behind it will be quite -- wouldn't they, john heilemann? >> i think so. the time is tough right now. listen to harry reid and mitch mcconnell who know how the senate works and how long it takes to do the following things, to reform medicare and tax reform. they are things that typically can take many months to get done. >> isn't it a surprise? it wasn't a surprise the show started at 6:00 a.m. on the east coast. it's no surprise we have a deadline. >> to build the legislation is not something that can happen in the span of four or five days. you can't. the key issue is what obama will be wanting to see is the outlines of a deal where he has a good assurance the outlines of the deal can get past once the meat is put on the bones. if that's the case and the markets see that, everything will be fine. whether it's a few days extension or a couple weeks, it's going to take a lot to get to that point. there's no consensus on the house side among house republicans in favor of what the gang of six is doing. as we saw in the film, the video, house democr
tonight, the house speaker john boehner i'm told is telling president obama he's open to discussing a big deficit reduction package, somewhere in the ballpark of $3 trillion over ten years. but first, though, speaker boehner said it's imperative that his members telling him the senate vote first on the house plan, cut, cap, and balance, if it fail fails, then look for th negotiations to continue. >>> key elements of the republican establishment are trying to nudge the hard line conservatives to a compromise. defaulting on our debt is not an option. it has real, immediate, and potentially catastrophic consequences. the ratings agency standard and poor's sent a team to capitol hill saying not raising the debt ceiling would stain america's credit rating and drive up interest costs for everyone. many house conservatives, though, aren't ready to give up and some of them won't budge. they say if there's any new taxes in this deal at the end, they would rather have the first default in american history. >>> in our new cnn/orc poll gives us a fresh sense of what you think. 34% of americans say an
ceiling and pass that through the house. by 5, 6, 7 months depending how big the package is the bigger, the better. send it to the senate. the senate has to take it up they will have to pass it and the president will have to sign it. this will give us more time to work the problem and give a revenue neutral tax reform that lowers rates and cleans out a lot of the trash in the code. >> i am angry with republicans in this sense. we don't appear to have their act together. the president is putting his plan in writing on the table. this is frustrating to me. on the very day the house is voting on real substantive kutsz dealing with the foundational issues of our debt problem that would help bring recovery into play why did they give the president the ability to run out with a gang of 6? haehn hang on a second we have a plan and distract the country with what i thought they were focused on democrats were opposing it and we have to stop the measure with the o'connell issue. it's like they are negotiating with themselves and the president hasn't put up a plan. >> one of the members of the gan

for their health and for the house. >> reporter: this scandal may not seem like a big deal from afar, but it's already left the prime minister scrambling, the head of scotland yard has resigned and today, a scathing parliamentary report accuses rupert murdoch's company of deliberately trying to thwart a criminal investigation into the illegal activities of his newspaper here. >> isn't it time that we sent this non-taxpaying murdoch back from whence he came? >> reporter: the prime minister didn't have to. murdoch boarded his private jet this afternoon to fly home to the u.s. no doubt happy to leave london and all the turbulence behind. jeffrey kofman, abc news, london. >> and questions tonight about where the controversy will go when he lands back here at home. >>> and still ahead here on "world news" this wednesday night, broken promises this evening. an entire town gathered and told that those promised pensions? we can't afford. so, now what? >>> and this comes as we look here for new solutions. this evening, the one thing you should ask your boss about tomorrow morning to keep your retirem
